Product overview

The Cisco® CXP 100GBASE modules offer customers a wide variety of high-density 100Gbps connectivity solutions for short-reach data center networking, high-performance computing networks, enterprise core aggregation, and service provider transport applications.

Features and benefits

Primary features of Cisco CXP 100GBASE modules include:

      Support for 100 Gigabit Ethernet

      Hot-swappable input/output device that plugs into a Cisco CXP-module-based switch, router, or optical platform port

      Flexibility of interface choice

      Support for a "pay-as-you-grow" model

      Support for Digital Optical Monitoring (DOM)

      CXP-100G-SR10 and CXP-100G-SR12 are both interoperable with any IEEE-compliant 100GBASE-SR10 form factors

      Support for the Cisco quality identification (ID) feature, which enables a Cisco platform to identify whether the module is certified and tested by Cisco

      Easy-to-use pull-release handle that is color coded for reach identification

      Capable of supporting 120Gb/s by utilizing all 12 optical lanes for high-density interconnect applications

      CXP-100G-SR10 supports breakout applications; each lane complies with 10GBASE-SR requirements and OTN rates up to 11.25Gb/s

      CXP-100G-SR10 and CXP-100G-SR12 both support breakout applications for 40GBASE-SR4

      Operating distance of maximum 100 meters over OM3 fibers or maximum 150 meters over OM4 fibers

      Power consumption of maximum 3.5W

      Operating case temperature of 0°C to 70°C

      MPO-24 optical receptacle

Cisco CXP 100GBASE-SR10 module

The Cisco CXP 100GBASE-SR10 module (Figure 1) supports link lengths of 100m and 150m on laser-optimized OM3 and OM4 multifiber cables, respectively. The module delivers high-bandwidth 100-gigabit links over 24-fiber ribbon cables terminated with MPO/MTP-24 optical connectors. It can also be used in 10 x 10-Gb mode along with ribbon-to-duplex-fiber breakout cables for connectivity to ten 10GBASE-SR optical interfaces.

Technical specifications

Platform Support

Cisco CXP modules are supported on Cisco switches and routers. For more details, refer to Cisco 100 Gigabit Ethernet Transceiver Modules Compatibility Matrix.

Connectors and cabling

      24-fiber MPO/MTP connector (CXP 100GBASE-SR10 and CXP-100G-SR12 modules receive a female MPO/MTP-24 connector)

Note:     Only connections with patch cords with PC or UPC connectors are supported. Patch cords with APC connectors are not supported. All cables and cable assemblies used must be compliant with the standards specified in the Regulatory and Standards Compliance section, later in this document.

Table 1 provides cabling specifications for the Cisco CXP modules.
